'Those Who Have Bared Witness To The Summonings'
  1. A wailing writhing mob of villagers stumbles out of the woods and proceeds to walk slowly towards you. They're words don't make sense until you can hear bits and pieces of an ancient summoning spell. Over and over is heard the name of some forbidden and half forgotten god.  Then they begin to surround you and that's when you notice the daggers. 
  2. A half mad man stumbles from the bushes, half of his body is burn and the other half covered with strange writing from the city of IX. His tongue has been cut out and two fingers removed from his left hand. The poor wretch is dying but needs and wants to spill his tale. Help him or kill him either is mercy for the gods have shown none. 
  3. A being stands in the middle of a circle of blasted and weird reeds. This being is nether man nor female and devoid of any sexual characteristics. The thing also has no face at all but if you approach it, the creature will begin carving into the soil signs and symbols of what or who did this too what was once 'her'. At the end the thing will melt away as if in a dream. 
  4. A wretched thing of twisted limbs, arms, faces, etc. all fused together and groaning stands or writhes in the middle of a road. It wails the name of some forbidden demon who has done this and begs to be killed. The horror crawls toward you. There is a 60% chance of it carrying some horrid disease.
